Jupiter Hammerheads 9, Lakeland Flying Tigers 3 (box)
Garrett Hill was hit hard in this one, and the game was nearly out of reach by the middle innings. Hill surrendered four runs in the first inning, including a two-run home run from J.J. Bleday, but the Flying Tigers did fight back. Jon Rosoff singled home Nick Ames in the fourth, and Reece Hampton followed with an RBI single to score Ulrich Bojarski. In the fifth, it was Kody Clemens driving in A.J. Simcox with a single to close the deficit to one run. That was as close as they would get. Hill surrendered three more runs in the fifth before exiting without collecting an out in the frame, and the Hammerheads cruised the rest of the way.
Clemens: 2-3, RBI, BB
Hampton: 2-4, RBI
Hill (L, 5-5): 4.0 IP, 5 H, 7 ER, 3 BB, 4 SO
Coming up next: Jake Thompson (3-0, 0.93 ERA) gets his second start since his return to the Tigers organization as the Flygers take on the Hammerheads again on Tuesday night.
Lake County Captains 13, West Michigan Whitecaps 6 (box)
Wilkel Hernandez got clobbered right out of the gate in this one, and while the Whitecaps fought back they were doomed by bad pitching. Hernandez allowed six runs, five earned, and only collected one out in the first inning before exiting. Reliever Yaya Chentouf took over for four innings while the offense got to work. Zach Malis got things started, drilling a triple to right field to score Corey Joyce. Malis they raced home on a Wenceel Perez single. In the fourth, Dayton Dugas cracked a two-run homer, and Riley Greene later drove in Malis on a ground out. At that point, the Captains led 7-5, and they pulled away by beating up on Chentouf and then Jose Vasquez in the middle innings.
Malis: 3-4, 3B, 2 R, 2 RBI, SO
Perez: 2-5, RBI
Joyce: 2-4, 2B, 2 R
Hernandez (L, 7-7): 0.1 IP, 6 H, 6 R (5 ER), BB, SO
Coming up next: The Whitecaps will be idle on Tuesday, and welcome in the Great Lakes Loons on Wednesday night at 7:05 p.m. ET. Hugh Smith (0-4, 3.63 ERA) will get the start for the home team.
Tri-City ValleyCats 7, Connecticut Tigers 5 (box)
Austin Bergner was rocked in his start for the Tigers, and their comeback fell a little short on Monday night. Bergner allowed six earned runs and couldn’t escape the second inning. The bullpen quieted things down and the Tigers got to work in the fifth. Eliezar Alfonzo got them on the board with an RBI double, and then scored on a Jordan Verdon double. Kingston Liniak singled home Verdon to make the score 7-3. Things were quiet until the eighth thanks to strong relief work from Austin Anderson, who punched out four in three no-hit innings of work. Kona Quiggle singled home Nick Quintana, and Alfonzo picked up another RBI driving in Jake Holton with a single in the eighth to pull within two runs, but that’s where the comeback ended.
Alfonzo: 2-4, 2B, R, 2 RBI
Verdon: 1-4, 2B, R, RBI, SO
Bergner (L, 0-1): 1.2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, SO
